have a goat he is 7 months old...started to get sick and weak so i wormed him and changed his feed. his gums are white and he . is . acting like he is dehydrated but he is drinking and eating can anyone help???
I agree with karen I would also treat that anemia..white lids is dangerous!..This is emergency and needs to be done ASAP
Red Cell is 6 cc per 100# I double day one then dose once a day for a week then once a week until he has good color or daily Iron shots
Vit B 12 shot daily (or B complex PLUS, whch has enough 12 in it)
green leaves high protien feed and alfalfa all hlep in rebuilding red blood cells
Also mix 50/50 of apple cider vinegar and water and drench him 20 cc daily...this too will help with anemia..
here is a good electrolyte recipe to keep him hydrated..best wishes
A half gallon of hot water
2-6 Tablespoons of Unsulphured Blackstrap Molasses
1-2 Tablespoons of Either Sea Salt, Epsom Salt, Baking Soda or Table Salt.
1 cup of Apple Cider Vinegar
Thank you guys for the help i really appreciate the info i want to keep learning more about goats but unfortunately he passed away yesterday=( i couldn't believe it....is it possible that a mushroom caused this???
